Decentralize mission accomplished. I've migrated my AMPlifiers google group and my FTL Industry and Free Keene News mailchimps to the open source, self-hosted Mailtrain. @mr_penguin

@FTL_Ian
That's awesome. So you got mailtrain working successfully? Did you send out a first mailing yet? You should probably do a test mailing against mail-tester.com/ and then do a partial mailing to see what real world results are like for rejected mails. My results against a large mailing list were in anticipated ranges vs what I am told was normal by a pro in the field.

@mr_penguin did one on the AMP list a week or so back. Did another one to my radio industry list today.

@FTL_Ian
Awesome to hear you got everything configured to evade the spam filters. That tends to be the excuse most give as to why they don't setup a mail server. Which is humorous considering the self hosted newsletter is supposedly "impossible" to do yourself nowadays. It's bull shit, but none the less. The commonly given excuse is probably a combination of incompetence and laziness.
